Chief Executive, Jez Moxey was full of praise for his new appointment and accepted things had gone wrong in the past.

"I could spend all day talking about the mistakes we've made in recent months. We're a big club, but we're not too big to realise our mistakes."

Jackett will be talking to Director of Football, Kevin Thelwell about the future of the playing squad. With many players on big salaries,there will almost certainly be a clear out, before new names are brought in.
